Question: How do I remove shrimp stains from clothes?
Shrimp are delicious and can be prepared in so many ways. Learn how to remove all types of shrimp stains from clothes.

If the shrimp are raw or boiled, treat the spot like any protein stain. Rinse the stain with cold water and then then launder as usual.

Fried shrimp stains need to be treated with a pre-treater and then laundered as usual. If you happen to be enjoying a bit of cocktail sauce, Tabasco or cream sauce you'll need to treat those stains as well.

If the garment is dry clean only, point out and identify the stain to your professional cleaner. If you are using a home dry cleaning kit, be sure to treat the stain with the provided stain remover before putting the garment in the dryer bag.
